Lab result questions..thank you

HI, i have gained a good twenty pounds in last year. My hands and feet are numb (hands especially when i wake up in the morning) and my temperature each day is around 96.2. I told my doctor this when my eyebrows thinned (I am 48) and that i was achy and just felt swollen and lethargic. My face is getting round which he said was just weight gain. My cholesterol also has gone up drastically but i eat well with tons of vegetables and no fast food. I went from having perfect blood pressure to high blood pressure in the past 6 months.

Thryroid testing came back:

TSH 1.47 (UIU/ML .34-5.60)
FREE T4 .67 (NG/DL .54-1.24)
TOTAL T3 1.25 (NG/DL 87-178)

Doctor said test shows no sign of thryroid issues so I guess i am wondering why i feel like this, always cold, hands number, body temp down. I had test for diabetes as well but came back negative.

Thanks for any feedback

Your FT4 is in the lower end - which can leave you with symptoms. It would be great to get your FT3 as well. Hopefully somebody more knowledgeable on the boards will respond.

I know many people here suggest getting your antibodies checked as well

Sometimes working with a Naturopathic doctor can be helpful - more apt to listen and respond to your needs.
